New Death Korps of Krieg from Forge World

99560105046_DKoKInfantryatEase01

Oct 9, 2017

ForgeWorld have released some new Death Korps of Krieg Infantry Units, Cavalry, and several new Artillery Units for PreOrder for use with your awesome Imperial Guard Army in Warhammer 40k!

The true strength of the Death Korps lies in its grim foot soldiers, the ranks of disciplined and relentless infantry that make up the korps of the siege regiments. Their cold hearted courage and sinister aspect have made them among the most famous and feared of all the regiments of the Astra Militarum.

This multi-part resin kit contains the components necessary to assemble a 10-man Infantry Squad of the Death Korps of Krieg. As the title implies, they’re modelled at ease, with these miniatures eschewing the usual hyper-aggressive tone of the Death Korps for something a little more relaxed (not a state likely to last for long…). Clad in the expected sinister masks and helmets, 8 of them boast a lasgun – some hefting theirs, others leaning on them casually. Numerous details are included – the models feature tarp rolls on their backpacks, entrenching tools hanging from their belts and canisters. 1 model features a flamer slung across his back, and 1 is a Sergeant, distinguishable by his sword and shoulder pad chevrons.

This kit comes as 55 components, and is supplied with 10 25mm round bases. Rules can be found in Imperial Armour – Index: Astra Militarum.

Legion Sicaran Omega Tank Destroyer Available from Forge World

99560101551_OmegaTankDestroyer01

Sept 11, 2017

Forge World has released the Legion Sicaran Omega Tank Destroyer for your WH40K and Horus Heresey table!

Retrofitted to allow the Sicaran hull to carry heavier firepower, the Omega is a formidable tank hunter. It utilises the speed provided by the Sicaran’s engines to apply overwhelming short range firepower in battle, racing forwards to ambush and obliterate the lumbering siege tanks of enemy columns.

Its simplified, some might say crude, systems are all capable of being produced by the lesser forges attached to many Space Marine strongholds, allowing them to replace losses of more complex vehicles even as the various Forge Worlds became isolated by war and mistrust at the height of the Horus Heresy.

This is a complete multi-part resin kit, in which you’ll find all the components you need to assemble a Legion Sicaran Omega Tank Destroyer. Sharing a hull with the sturdy Legion Sicaran Battle Tank, the standout feature to this model is the 2 enormous plasma cannon that dominate the turret head. These cannon are fed power by massive arrays of tightly-bound cables and both feature their own ammo feed, as well as 6 plasma flasks. Other features that distinguish this model from the Battle Tank on which it is based are the complex sensor array and window visor; the rest of the kit includes 2 lascannon, 3 heavy bolters and all the gun mounts, tracked wheels and large, brutal-looking exhausts you would expect.

This kit comes as 52 components. Rules for fielding the Legion Sicaran Omega Tank Destroyer in games of Warhammer 40,00 and The Horus Heresy are available as a PDF download.

Sept 11, 2017

It is a dark time for the galaxy. The Old Republic is dead. In its place, the Galactic Empire has seized control of the galaxy, subjugating worlds with unprecedented speed and ruthlessness. Every day, the Imperial flag spreads to new worlds. And worst of all, there are rumors that the Emperor has been developing a new superweapon, one with the power to destroy whole planets.

What do these rumors mean? Is this the death of freedom? Or is it the first spark of a war that will shake the galaxy? The time has come for you to decide.

The Rise of the Empire expansion for Star Wars: Rebellion is now available from Fantasy Flight Games!

Largely inspired by the characters and events of Rogue One: A Star Wars StoryRise of the Empire is an expansion for Star Wars: Rebellion that adds new depth and intrigue to the game’s epic conflicts between the tyrannical Galactic Empire and rag-tag Rebel Alliance.

With its wealth of new heroes, villains, starships, troopers, and vehicles—as well as its new rules for Cinematic Combat—Rise of the Empire allows you to send Jyn Erso and Cassian Andor to recover the Death Star plans. As the Imperial player, you can seize command of Director Krennic and his finest death troopers, then set traps for the Rebel pilots and soldiers, luring them away from their base and into massive battles. You’ll even find new characters and units from other Star Wars materials, as the Empire gains access to Admiral Motti and the Interdictor. Even Jabba the Hutt makes an appearance, feeding his prisoners to the Sarlaac.

New Primarus Marines and Tzeentch War Scrolls Available to Pre Order

99120101210_30Years40KVetSgt01

Sept 8, 2017

Celebrate 30 years (no, really, it has been that long) of Warhammer 40,000 with this Space Marine model – a special collector’s edition of the Primaris Intercessor Veteran Sergeant, which you can add to your Intercessor Squads in games!

The Veteran Sergeant is a multi-part plastic model, featuring the same impressive levels of detail as the rest of the Primaris Space Marines – he comes armed with a bolt rifle, a holstered bolt pistol and a sword (which is supplied sheathed), and his Mk X power armour features a crux terminatus and marksman’s honour on the right shoulder. The left shoulder is blank, meaning this model can be painted to represent any Chapter you prefer. The kit features 2 variant heads, one helmeted and the other bare.

The Veteran Sergeant comes as 13 components, and is supplied with a Citadel 32mm Round base and a Primaris Character transfer sheet.

The Changer of Ways, the Master of Fortune, the Great Conspirator and the Architect of Fate – these are just some of the names of Tzeentch. A brother god to Nurgle, Khorne and Slaanesh, and often an ally of the Horned Rat, he is the undisputed master of the arcane arts. His followers, daemon and mortal alike, swarm over the mortal realms in scintillating glory, searing the land with coruscating flames of change.

This pack of 25 large-format cards contains the each of the unit Warscrolls from Battletome: Disciples of Tzeentch, printed on individual cards for handy reference in your battles, along with a selection of double-sided card gaming tokens – use these to indicate terrain effects, spell effects, command traits, and abilities for certain units and characters in games of Warhammer Age of Sigmar.

Please note, you’ll need a copy of Battletome: Disciples of Tzeentch to use the contents of this set.
